I had a look at the project's page and am interested enough that I would like to download the source. I clicked on the link that takes me to the "Code" tab and found s "Build" folder dated roughly 5 days ago (as of Mar 24, 2016) by Tormod. I clicked on that and found two more folders:  unix and win32; however, the win32 folder has the following note: "[db76c9] build/win32 is deprecated...". Is this the folder that I should be downloading? Or is there a different procedure for downloading the source. I seldom visit sourceforge pages, so I at a loss how to navigate the project's pages and select the appropriate resource to download. Bottom line: Help please <g>. Salvador

Subject: [Coco] toolshed beta release

(toolshed - for manipulating OS-9 and DECB disk images onLinux/Mac/Windows and more)I have prepared a beta release of Toolshed 2.2 in the hope that it canget some testing before the real release. There is a zip for win32(should work fine on 64-bit as well) and a deb for Debian/Ubuntu64-bit (12.04 or later) in http://toolshed.sourceforge.net/snapshots/Since Toolshed 2.1 there are many fixes by Tim Lindner, David Ladd,Robert Gault and me, too many to be mentioned. Please see themercurial log athttps://sourceforge.net/p/toolshed/code/ci/default/tree/ (click at"History") which lists 77 commits since tag 2.1. Most fixes were tothese tools:os9 format (-l sets pd_typ, allocation bitmap fixes)os9 gen (respect cluster size, number of sides only for floppies)os9 free (cluster size, largest free block)decb copy (copy meta data)decb dir (print header, escape non-printing characters)decb dsave (new)The documentation recently received a brush-up from Tim and can be seen at http://toolshed.sourceforge.net/ToolShed.htmlThe help message of e.g. os9, decb, makewav will now list the Toolshedversion. The beta release shows "2.1", and only the final release willbe bumped to "2.2".There has also been a few updates to HDB-DOS which will be released aspart of Toolshed 2.2, but they are not included in the beta releasepackages (only the cross development tools).The home page for Toolshed is http://toolshed.sourceforge.net - orhttp://toolshed.sf.net to save keystrokes.Best regards,Tormod-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
